pull this off. tony mendez is an operative. it works out beautifully. 's played by ben afleck. to his credit, while he's directing and also being the star playing tony mendez, he doesn't take over the movie which is a lot of mistakes that a lot of these directors who are famous actors to begin with do. they kind of overplay it and they take over because it's part of the ego. he did not do that. >> the actors he chose, great actors but not necessarily well known. >> you believe it. he actually kidnapped them in his own way. >> he sequestered them. >> and put them in their own confinement so they could see what it was like to be in that strict confinement. you're right, he will probably get some statues or at least be nominated. it's an intlents entertaining -- excellent entertaining film. >> thank so you much. >> thank you. you're watching 9news now at 6:00 a.m. good morning this friday morning. i'm andrea roane. we're thankful for that as we are with a
